Swimming with Wild Dolphins in Hawaii on Multi-Day Trip
An Example of a Multi-Day Trip Dolphin Encounter Schedule
Day One: Sunday Evening Introduction
Early Sunday evening the group will meet at poolside for introductions. We will check that everyone is comfortable with their snorkel gear.
Day Two: Monday Morning – Reef Snorkel Checkout
To assure everyone’s comfort in the ocean, we begin at a beautiful reef in calm, clear waters. At Two-Step you will be amazed at seeing colorful fish, coral, and turtles as soon as you enter the water in this protected park.
Roberta tells Dolphin Stories and offers the basics of interacting with dolphins– 3 Dolphin Secrets. The talk can be accompanied by a powerpoint presentation with beautiful slides of the dolphins we may meet.
Days Three to Six: Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday Mornings – Dolphin Swim
Our days begin at 8:00am at the boat harbor. We meet our captain and attune to the world we are entering. The boat takes us along the Kona coast to our rendezvous with the local Spinner dolphins. We spend the morning in the company of the dolphins we find, immersed
in their joyful vibrations. Our days on the boat end after a delicious lunch.
This series of days with the focus on dolphin encounters allows you to relax and take in more and more each day.
Your comfort in the water brings the dolphins closer. Abundant time on the water offers moments of magic between each person and the dolphins. Even though we usually encounter dolphins, because dolphins are wild and free swimming beings, we can never guarantee an encounter with them.
Many factors come into play when we are interacting with the powerful forces of nature, the ocean, and the dolphins. Roberta’s calm and experienced presence assists those who may have never snorkeled have a wonderful experience.
